Dr Pat explains how he can complete root canal treatment so efficiently
There was an awkward moment at my house this morning. My wife, Dr. Jean, and son, Julian, discovered that there were no more Uncrustables as they packed for his fishing camp — they had to get out a jar of peanut butter, a jar of jelly, a loaf of bread, and Lord knows how many utensils! It was just like when I was a kid!
If you are not a parent with young children, Uncrustables are pre-wrapped and frozen peanut butter and jelly sandwiches. You pack them for lunch, and they thaw by that time without needing to have been refrigerated. Can you think of anything more American?
It may be hard to understand why anyone would want a pre-made, pre-wrapped peanut butter and jelly sandwich, but with two dogs to walk and three kids to get out of the house every morning, they really have made a difference in our lives!
It occurred to me that I do lots of things that save only a minute or two when I do root canals. Individually, these time-savers don’t amount to much, and might even seem silly to some. But together, they mean that your root canal will take just one visit instead of two. And at our office, we have a philosophy of time, which is that we respect yours. We like to think that we do dentistry on your schedule! Uncrustables may be fodder for late-night comedians, but they save us time for more important things, and Julian finds them very tasty.
